You've all been so kind & welcoming!
It still makes Mom cry when she looks at my page but I am fine!
Cinnamon is a sweetie & I thank you all for being so kind, considerate, loving & supportive (not in that order, of course).

I guess you have all been wondering what happened to me....
Tomorrow will be my 4th week at the Bridge. I think it's pretty cool but I'm worried about my Mom - she misses me so much & can't stop crying.
It happened pretty quickly - I started walking very slowly which is not like me - I'm pretty frisky & I like to sniff & walk fast. Mom thinks it was Hurricane Sandy which took it's toll on me. I mean... it wasn't pleasant being carried up & down 7 flights of stairs! I panted & carried on but I think it was harder on Mom than me.
I went to the Vet for my 3 month visit & I was okay.
But shortly afterward I stopped eating - I dunno why - I love my chicken.
My vet tried appetite stimulants & then anti-nausea pills.
But then I didn't want to eat my dog food even with chicken. So Mom gave me only Chicken. I didn't want it.... even when Mom tried to feed me by hand. Then she tried bread with cheese. This worked for a while. But then I kept throwing up & this wasn't pleasant.
Then Mom tried hamburger. Then filet mignon. I did not want to eat. I didn't even want to drink water.
I guess even a pretty girl like me is entitled not to eat - especially at 16.
So that's what happened, my furriends. After 3 days of not eating and throwing up & tremors, Mom took me to the Vet & he said it was time.
So as hard as it is for me to write this, it is harder for my Mom.
I thank you all for your support & wishes - I hope I will be back at Dogster soon.
Love you all :)

I wanted to thank everyone for their outpouring of love and support and encouragement. I can't stop crying right now - I am looking for her & waiting for her to dig on her pillows.
I will write another diary when I can. Love you all xoxo

I knew there was going to be a "Hurricane" & my Mom prepared for it. We live in Brooklyn, New York near the beach, so we were in Evacuation Zone A but didn't evacuate. We live in a 12 floor apartment building on the 7th floor & I wasn't going anywhere.
So we were apprehensive on Sunday. Monday the winds started to pick up but it was only drizzling so Mom took me out during the day. Then again at around 5 pm. THEN IT GOT CRAZY out there!
Heavy winds, rain - I wasn't nervous but Mom was. Then the power went off at 8:30 pm.
I looked out the window & - REALLY - there was a RIVER with WAVES running up our street. So I went to sleep & Mom kept telling me "Don't worry, the TV will go on in the middle of the night, you'll see, Chloe (not that I watch TV but she does - BOL).
Our apartment building was devastated because of the storm surge. No lights in the hallways, stairwells, no elevators, no heat, no water. Mom put paper on the floor, but I just looked at her. I couldn't go out to do my "business" unless Mom & our friend carried me down the DARK stairwell 6 flights (we live on the 7th floor) & believe me, I fought her all the way to the 1st floor where we went down to the pool area, around the bathhouse & through a tiny opening in the gate fence to the street. There were uprooted trees that I used to pee pee on.
This went on for 2 1/2 days. At first, I wouldn't leave our apartment because it was dark in the halls. Then I wouldn't go near the stairwell, because I remembered that the concrete stairs are slippery on my paws. I wiggled & panted & even nipped at a neighbor who tried to help me! I never do that kind of stuff.....
Yesterday (Thursday) - I hate being carried down the stairs so much that I finally did them on my own without being carried. Mom kept telling me "Chloe! ONE step at a time, not TWO!" BOL! I did have to be carried UP the 7 flights because Mom was worried about my hind legs.
Then Mom went out to get food - I have food, but she didn't.
So today is Friday - it's been a lost week. But thank God, we are safe with power & electricity & elevators. No heat or hot water, so I'm gonna stay away from Mom until it goes on - BOL!
We were very lucky - considering all the people who have lost their lives & homes & still don't have power. It's cold in my apartment now - I don't mind it but Mom does & the temps are supposed to drop tonight through the weekend (Mom can't believe they are gonna have the NYC Marathon with all the people who need help).
Thank God, we are okay! If you've read this whole long story, thank you. And God bless & be safe all who have come within Sandy's wrath & her aftermath.

Mom was blessed with me when North Shore Animal League called & said they had a litter of Cocker Spaniels from Tennessee (I'm a labrador/cocker spaniel mix but that makes me all the more special!). So there I was with my sibs - I came running out like "the little nut girl" that I am & there was my Mom! How lucky were we to find eachother :)
Did I ever tell you guys that I nibbled on my Mom's fingers all the way home? And that I did a poop on the carpet the minute I got home? (A word from Mom - "who cares??? How cute it was!!").
I was a just a teeny little 6 week old baby girl in a new home (BUT NOT FOR LONG - BOL - THE NEXT DAY IT WAS MINE!)!) so Mom slept with me on newspapers on the floor in the kitchen - her friend told her to put a ticking alarm clock between us so our hearts would beat as one & I would feel like I was with my (original) fur Mom & sibs.
But it wasn't necessary - I knew my new Mom loved me. In the (very early) morning, I got up - mewed a little - looked at Mom who was lying right beside me & knew she loved me more than anything!! Since then our world has been WONDERFUL!

Words cannot express how sad I am & how much I will miss my love, my funny honey, Benny. He was my support & I am blessed for the times we shared together.
My prayers for his Momma & Dad for strength & fortitude during this terribly difficult time.
Always remember the wonderful times we spent in the EGG ROOM, my love :)
I love you Benny, my love bug :)

What an amazing few weeks this has been for me & my Mom!
And today is my birthday - check out my videos to see how excited I am BOL!
Really, it was pretty funny - Mom was nervous cause she hadn't had a pup since she was a kid (please DO NOT ask how long ago that was!!!!) - but then me & my litter came running out at North Shore Animal League - I was only 6 weeks old! & I was running all over the place!!!!
It was LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT!
I nibbled on Mom's fingers all the way home - now I only want CHICKEN!!!!!
Thank you all my furriends for your wishes & pressies.:)
